  • Description

    My name is Maya, Im 20 years old and I live in Germany near Berlin in a small peaceful village.
    Im out of a musician family. My Dad is a Jazz musician and teacher like my mom also a music teacher. I am very interested in art and I write poems and storys, I love reading, beeing in nature and I do a lot of sport. Because we live surrounded by nature, we have a large garden, where we grow our own fruits and vegetables.
    Last year I worked 6 months in Italy on organic farms and it was such a wonderful time, working in the fields, in the garden and to meet with different people. There I was cooking with my new friends, I worked hard in the fields, and I learnd the language very fast.
    I was visiting England two times before, once I was near Bath, Dartmoor and Boscastle and the other time I was in London. Since that time I was so in love with England. It was a very nice time.
    Now I want to use my last chance to travel and to work a little bit before I start studying.
    Before I was in Italy, I finished school ( I visited a waldorfscool) where I learned a lot about nature and herbs, we worked with wood and we did a lot of art projects. I hope that I can help you with all my skills. After school I worked as a waitress, and as a babysitter, I cooked for many people, I renovated the corridor of our house, worked with animals on the farm and in the agrarculture, I made cheese, jam, sauces, pasta, cakes, wine and liqueur, and I worked also in a supermarket.
    I really looking forward to work again in the garden, to help and meet other people, get inspiration, new live experiences and also I hope to become better in english.
    In Italy I spoke both Italian and a lot of English, especially in the beginning. I would be very happy to recive an answer from you and I really looking forward to work with you.
    Kind regards.
